About the Emerging Leaders & Markets Conference

The Emerging Leaders and Markets (ELM) Conference is the New York Real Estate Chamber’s signature event, bringing together leaders from Government, Business, Community Development, and Finance to enlighten attendees with regard to current opportunities and innovations in a series of topical panels. The New York Real Estate Chamber (NYREC) expects ELM to attract 200 commercial and housing real estate professionals, along with political and community leaders from throughout the Tri-State Area. 

 

ELM will feature some of the real estate’s most successful and innovative deal makers and leaders of minority-owned firms and just as important leading public policymakers, to drive the discourse, develop ideas, and relationships around sustainable development in urban communities. The ELM Conference is a uniquely powerful opportunity to connect with dynamic developers, government officials, financiers, and other real estate professionals engaged in remaking the urban landscape.
